known as mother brown's kitchen. it's an asset in the community and doing work that not that i can recall has been left undone. they permitted the need services to a population that is struggling. rex their contributions mother brown has been embraced for years. there's a big difference between diane that mother brown currently provides and a 24 hour shelter. given there's been no outreach process with the application i personally conducted two community meetings and salty heard more concerns about the proposal then support. this issue has split the community. all the concern you may hear today, i have - i still have a number of concerns that are to be revolved. the city should have conducted outreach and engaged stakeholders about this proposal before they applied for the state funds. no one that i spoke with participated in the process. it's not acceptable to conduct no community process around it and frankly i don't think of any community it would be tolerated (clapping) second issue of concern is the site use and appropriateness. the site those funds have been secured for doesn

discussion and the reasons that governor brown did this was to reserve funding for school because when the plans expire and the property tax will be restored -- under 2113 the legislature made clear that the schools would receive their full share of the tax increment before we could use the tax increment for affordable housing. this led to the finding both in the legislature and in some of the legislature history that s p2113 wasn't going to have an impact on state and its funding of schools and that's a significant factor here today. also at is core, 2113 adopted the replacing housing obligations that were first a domented in 1976 and continued through dissolution. where ever an agency destroyed a housing unit that was occupied by lower income household the agency was required to create a plan and it was required to develop units that one for one replacement with an equal number of bedroom as those who had been destroyed. the agency also had a four year timeframe to replace those units so the legislature adopted 2113 saying the city of san francisco and is redevelopment agency want
in the state of california to support assemblyman trust act which all of you has been signed by governor brown. thousands of our members of our limited english and immigrant community, in fact, all our commensurate's live in fear of did he portion and they've mistrusted the system. so this is a message i want to send by the signing of this ordinance and i'm speaking to our immigrant communities that's it's safe absolutely save to call the police if you're a victim or witness to a crime. everyone knows we need to stand against s come we also retain some local flexibility to deal with violent felons and while we compromised on that aspect of it and understood how complicated that was that perhaps we had points of view on we never lost sight of getting rid of s came. so we do what i think other government's should do we found the common ground and that's why i'm proud to be signing this ordinance. i'd like to take p the opportunity to invite supervisor avalos what it's meant to him but basing also to the rest of the city. thank you, mr. mayor. and i want to thank you for your work on this legis
the transportation sector. we want to eliminate that. you heard governor brown last week he made the charge that climate change is too important and we want that to happen here, no san francisco. we added bike sharing. we are and have long been and will continue to be a transit per city and when you need a car electric cars will be a convenient alternative. in the bay area we have 12 thousand plug in vehicles and that's huge. it represents 1/3rd of all the plugs ins that are sold in the entire state and almost 20 percent in the entire country and that's because not just a because we enjoy them but we've done the right thing. with the 9 counties we're working with we've built an infrastructure. san francisco and the bay area has the most charging stations, in fact, over 2 hundred charging stations are available in more than 60 different locations in our city. we're making it vent and part of the way we live in this very quality area of the san francisco bay area. city government installed 40 percent of those free charging stations 90 in our garages and airport. we add to that our fleet is 1
